What's a "compatibility file"?  I've only got one photo folder.  Running Vista also.  Did you install in the default folder, or did you follow the Vista FAQ and install elsewhere?

You have it installed in Program Files, it is recommended not to do this with Vista because it avoids Vista's tendency to dislike files changing in the Program Files hierarchy, the so called virtual store.

I can't see the problem.  You've only got one photo folder, and each aircraft has two photos, which is how Radarbox should perform.  Here's mine:



I have no idea what "Compatibility Files" are.  Maybe because you've installed RB in Program Files, which isn't really recommended.

EDIT:  See http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista-7/556762-compatibility-files.html - it's caused by installing in Program Files.

Its the Virtual Store Redirection feature, install the program as per the FAQ's and you should be okay.
